WATERBURY, Conn. & FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Northeast Scientific, Inc., provider of resterilization and repackaging of medical devices, has established a dedicated sales channel relationship with EXP Pharmaceutical Services Corp. to offer the best-in-class solution for Surgical Package Renewal to the healthcare supply chain. Resterilization and repackaging of Open-But-Unused, Breached and Date-Expired medical device packaging provides reduced healthcare expenses, minimization of unnecessary contribution to U.S. landfills and cost containment to America’s hospitals and surgery centers. EXP will aggressively expand its sales offering to include bringing Surgical Package Renewal to U.S. healthcare facilities.
"EXP and Northeast Scientific are innovative leaders in the healthcare market," said EXP CEO Gus Changaris. "Teaming with Northeast Scientific enables us to deliver an additional significant advantage to hospitals and surgery centers across America. This new relationship will enhance and expand the services of both companies and improve the overall cost containment, waste generation minimization and overall efficiency of the healthcare supply chain.”
Surgical Package Renewal is a simple-to-use, web-based returns service that provides comprehensive notification, distribution and management of medical devices being renewed through an FDA-approved sophisticated cleanroom process.
EXP provides reverse distribution services for the return and destruction of expired and recalled pharmaceuticals. EXP serves hospital, government, independent retail, chain-store, clinic, and long-term-care pharmacies. Today, EXP is providing on-site returns and consulting services to nearly 70 percent of all U.S. hospitals. “The lessons we have learned from our 18 years in the pharmaceutical reverse distribution area correlates so well to the tracking of healthcare facility assets seen in unused medical devices. Often these 'clean devices' are wasted or donated and now they can be restocked to improve cash flow, limit negative environmental impact and provide cost containment,” says Nadine You, President of EXP.
“We are excited about our partnership with EXP to include their direct sales of the Surgical Package Renewal program for unused medical devices,” says Craig Allmendinger, CEO of Northeast Scientific, Inc. “The quality and efficiency of our FDA inspected facility in Waterbury, Ct., coupled with the broad in reach into America’s hospitals and surgery centers provided by EXP, provides this cost-saving initiative across the country.”
